Some Philadelphia Football Fans Mistakenly Walked Into A Leather Bar (Guess The Bar's Name)
Some Eagles fans got a surprise when they walked into a gay bar instead of a sports bar.
While looking for a place to hang out for the Super Bowl, some visiting Eagles fans walked into the Minneapolis bar called the Eagle Bolt. Apparently, some people thought the bar was an Eagles themed sports bar and others chose the bar just because Eagle was in the name.
‘We were just walking around as we were looking for a bar,’ one patron told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
‘I said we’re stopping there, it says Eagle.’
Of course, these visitors quickly found out there were more bears than Eagles in the joint.
Thankfully though, there was no conflict once the locals and the visitors realized what was up. In fact, the mix up was almost not worthy of noting (other than for a few laughs).
As Cyd Zeigler at Out Sports said:
"You don’t have to be gay to watch the Super Bowl in a gay bar. Heck, you don’t have to be a football fan either."
"You just have to be cool, and it sounds like a bunch of cool Eagles fans had the night of their lives in a gay bar called Eagle."
Bar owner Ed Hopkins agreed and said that things like this should be this simple. So what if it’s a gay bar? As long as there’s a tv screen playing the Super Bowl, the more the merrier.
“It assumes there is something wrong with realizing you are in a gay bar,” he said. “The people in tonight enjoyed being in our place.”
“The Eagles fans were very rowdy and fun. We enjoyed having them in our establishment.”
“The Super Bowl is supposed to bring everyone together that loves football. That is how the Eagle felt tonight.”
